A “MAN with a van” who advertised his services on Facebook had his vehicle crushed after being caught fly-tipping.

Glynn Atkinson (53) dumped waste at Hoober Hall Lane in Hoober and Howdike Lane at Hooton Roberts.

Atkinson, of Osberton Street, Rawmarsh, admitted three breaches at the Environmental Protection Act when he appeared before magistrates in Sheffield.

He was ordered to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work and pay costs of £250 and a victim surcharge of £80.

Cllr Emma Hoddinott, Cabinet member for waste, roads and community safety, said: “Fly-tipping costs the council over £1 million a year to clean up.

“Where there is evidence that a vehicle has been involved in such crimes, we will use all the powers available to us.

“Members of the public should always ensure that anyone they ask to help remove rubbish from their property has a valid waste carrier’s licence.”
